Description Till Maas 2009-08-05 07:33:30 EDT
Description of problem:
If i use %defattr(755,root,root-) and later %attr(644,-,-) foofile, the owner and group of foofile are not set to root.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. wget http://till.fedorapeople.org/tmp/attrtest.spec
2. rpmbuild -bb attrtest.spec
3. rpm -qp --qf "[%-8{fileusername} %-8{filegroupname} %{filenames}\n]" ~/rpmbuild/RPMS/noarch/attrtest-0-1.fc11.noarch.rpm | grep $USER
Actual results:
till     till     /attr

Expected results:
grep should not match / all contents should belong to root:root
Comment 1 Till Maas 2009-08-05 07:37:57 EDT
I expected the beheaviour because of this documentation:

| Attributes that do not need to be set by %attr may be replaced with a dash
|  The %defattr sets default %attr for RPM.
Comment 2 R P Herrold 2009-08-05 14:48:54 EDT
I would suggest there is a comma missing before the last dash in the %defattr

Thanks, but the spec does not have the typo.
